When it comes to finding an optimal indoor temperate, winter months can be more complicated than summer ones. As in the summer, you want to find a balance between savings and comfort. In the winter, however, you also need to ensure that your home’s interior stays protected from freezing temperatures.
We recommend that you set your winter thermostat to at least 55 degrees, even when you are away, and to 68 degrees is optimal when you are home and awake. If you’re comfortable with cooler indoor temperatures, lowering your thermostat by 10 to 15 degrees when you are asleep or away can reduce your heating expenses by 5 to 15 percent annually. If you think your energy bill is too high, or if you are having difficulty heating your home, contact a professional HVAC heater inspection service for assistance.
